December 20, 2022

Teresa Johnson, co-head of Arnold & Porter’s Capital Markets practice, recently was recognized by the Bar Association of San Francisco (BASF) with the Award of Merit at the group’s Annual Membership Luncheon and Installation of Officers. The distinction was given to Johnson in acknowledgment of her work with the Legal Alliance for Reproductive Rights. She also was installed as the President-Elect of BASF during the luncheon.

Johnson, who also serves on the BASF Board of Directors, is one of the founders and leaders of the Legal Alliance for Reproductive Rights, a coalition formed by the Bar Association of San Francisco, the San Francisco City Attorney and over 70 law firms, which connects women and pregnant people, providers and supporters with pro bono legal support after the fall of Roe v. Wade.

Earlier this year Johnson was recognized by The Women Lawyers of Alameda County as the 2022 “Attorney of Distinction.” She was also named as a leader in the LGBTQ community at the San Francisco Business Times’s Business of Pride Awards.

Johnson advises clients on corporate and finance matters, often serving as a trusted advisor to the C-suite and board members. She also advises clients on securities transactions, and compliance and reporting matters. Johnson focuses her practice in particular on board diversity, stakeholder capitalism and other ESG matters.
